Holistic dentist uses advanced research, technology for better health, cosmetic appearance

research, technology for better health, cosmetic appearance

The Maine Center for Dental Medicine uses the latest proven research, materials, and technologies to retain or restore the health of your teeth, gums, and body.

Modern approaches

Many formerly common medical procedures are now considered antiquated or even dangerous. Dental amalgam or silver fillings have been popular since at least the early 19th century. Today, many dental practices won’t place amalgam because it contains mercury. Your holistic dentist in Maine only places materials that don’t contain mercury, such as the first BPA-free filling material: all-ceramic Admira Fusion.

Drs. Imam and Khan follow International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology protocols for the removal of restorations that contain mercury. This is important, because mercury can be released as vapors during the process.

Dental implants made from medical-grade titanium remain popular, but the Maine Center for Dental Medicine offers: metal-free zirconia implants. This ceramic is both gentle to living tissues and unmatched in terms of cosmetic appearance and durability for lasting beauty and strength.

Like amalgam, fluoride has also been widely accepted for decades. Contrary to what you or your parents may have thought, fluoride isn’t essential. In fact, the IAOMT reports that fluoride can interfere with important biological processes, and Drs. Imam and Khan may even need to treat the effects of fluorosis, which can present as stubborn discoloration, pits, and a rough surface. The Maine Center for Dental Medicine uses fluoride alternatives, such as xylitol.

The center provides a number of services not offered by other dentists in and around Skowhegan, including:

  • Ozone therapy
  • Gentle laser dentistry (Waterlase)
  • Precision 3-D imaging technology (Galileos)
  • CEREC “restorations in a day”
  • Natural Myobrace® pre-orthodontic treatment

I have been going to see Drs. Khan and Imman for several years now. I am thoroughly impressed with their advanced education and attention to the patient's pain. They always explain, in advance of doing any work, the intricacies, pros and cons of different approaches. I have total faith in both of their professional abilities and also have recommended them to everyone I know who is looking for dentists. They are both immensely kind people, tremendous dentists and all their support staff is exceptionally pleasant and helpful.

I have been with this practice for a number of years now and I appreciate their approach to dental medicine. Dr. Kahn explains any recommendations thoroughly so I can make clear decisions about my dental health. Mary Lynne is an award winning hygienist and the best in the business. I look forward to my visits with her! Overall, everyone that I come into contact there is professional and friendly and you are always greeted with a smile! Thank you!

The team at this dental office is superb. My amalgams were removed with great ease and all precautions for mercury removal were taken. They are such a caring bunch of professionals. I will definitely continue taking the 5 hour drive to this office and continue being a patient at this dental office.
